Spectrum of Teaching Styles in Physical Education

A talk by Shane Pill
Flinders University

In this era of guidance of teachers towards models based practice it is worth remembering and revisiting the first and most enduring teaching/instructional model for PE, Mosston's Spectrum of Teaching Styles (The Spectrum). The Spectrum is a non-verses model, recognising that all teaching styles can have a place in teaching physical education and in sport coaching. The pedagogical maturity of the teacher/coach is matching teaching style to task outcome and the 'need' of the learner. In this way, the PE teacher and sport coach purposefully designs the learning environment. This session will look at the important role of the teacher and coach as intentional learning designers through key tenets of The Spectrum, and we will examine a game -based approach (GBA) to show that teaching and coaching is consistently not 'a model' and rather a cluster of teaching styles, and consider some of the assumptions behind the labelling of a GBA as guided discovery/discovery learning.
